Blown Away - The Rolling Stones and the Death of The Sixties, A.E. Hotchner
3 A.E. Hotchner Blown Away - The Rolling Stones and the Death of The Sixties
Simon & Schuster 233568 USA 1990 First Edition 0671693166 / 9780671693169 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good A revelation about the Rolling Stones and their times, based on archives of material, originally amassed by Bill Wyman. Hotchner explores the Stones' humble musical beginnings in London and traces their lives and times to a horrific climax in 1969 - a year when Brian Jones was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool, when Charles Manson perpetrated a series of gruesome murders, when Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix died of overdoses and when the Hells Angels brutally murdered a man at Altamount while the Stones played on. The author looks beyond to the consolidation of their reputation as the definitive rock group of their decade. The book also presents the real truth about their notorious sex lives, exorbitant drug habits and explosive creativity. Finally, Hotchner unravels the mystery of Brian Jones' death and exposes the turmoil within the rock group that led to a blood struggle in the final days of Jones' life. The author also wrote "Papa Hemingway", "Doris Day" and "Sophia". 349 pages. Light browning to page edges. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

The Pelican History of Music Volume I: Ancient Forms to Polyphony, Alec Robertson and Denis Stevens [Editor]
6 Alec Robertson and Denis Stevens [Editor] The Pelican History of Music Volume I: Ancient Forms to Polyphony
Pelican / Penguin Books 232590 Great Britain 1966 Reprint Softcover Good Condition Pelican Books A492.The '1066' of our music lies somewhere in the Middle Ages, when the Western tradition seems to spring, fully armed with tonality, harmony and rhythm, from the head of medieval man. It is easy to forget that musical languages had been evolving, in both the East and the West, for at least 5000 years before music in Europe began to assume the laws we are tempted to regard as perfect and unalterable. This first volume in the Pelican History of Music traces the story of music from the earliest known forms as far as the beginnings of the polyphonic period in the first half of the 15th century. A full section on non-Western music indicates how our tradition is linked with or has evolved from the forms of music prevailing in other parts of the world. 343 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Beatles: From The Cavern to the Rooftop, Allan Kozinn
8 Allan Kozinn The Beatles: From The Cavern to the Rooftop
Phaidon Press 234014 Great Britain 2012 Reprint 071485946X / 9780714859460 Softcover Very Good Condition The Beatles follows the extraordinary development of four self-taught musicians from Liverpool, from their beginnings, until the break-up in 1970. This biography sets the group's evolution against the backdrop of a popular culture explosion in the 1960s. A serious study of the Beatles' music is expanded here by consideration not only of the group's commercially released disks but also of rare working tapes which both shed light on the compositional process and reveal how many of their milestone recordings took shape in the studio. It also examines why the innovative music of the Beatles - created, at least initially, as ephemera - has remained so durable. 264 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Penguin Classics 230812 Great Britain 2008 0141441291 / 9780141441290 Softcover Near Fine Condition Gilbert and Sullivan's operas are some of the world's best-loved musical works, delighting audiences with their joyous wit, topsy-turvy logic and extravagant wordplay. This glorious treasury is the definitive annotated edition of all fourteen of their operas. From the partially lost work "Thespis", the first collaboration between W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, through the triumphant comic romps "The Pirates of Penzance" and "The Mikado", to lesser-performed gems such as the fanciful "The Sorcerer" and the acerbic lampoon "Patience", Gilbert's libretti are collected here in their most accurate and faithful form. There is a fascinating commentary on each work, telling the extraordinary stories behind the inspiration for the opera and its performance history, and giving plot summaries and original cast lists. 866 pages. Pen mark to top of page edges indicating remainder mark. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Music::Opera; Music; ISBN/EAN: 9780141441290. Inventory No: 230812.
